American Kestrel

The American Kestrel is North America’s littlest falcon and also one of the most colorful of all raptors.

I’ve found this beauty a few times perched in one of the trees in an open, uncut grassy area in Everglades City.

The little area is an ideal hunting spot for it, and for me some nice photo opportunities.  Yay!
